Schedule
We will meet at the Ace Cafe at 7am on the 21st of October 2017. After a proper biker’s breakfast from the Ace Cafe and the chance to get some team pictures, we will set off for Paris. For a full schedule, information about accommodation options and lots of other useful info – check out our London to Paris Information pack. 

Why do it?
You’ll be raising awareness for the fight against modern day slavery in the UK and abroad. There are estimated to be 13,000 people living in modern day slavery in the UK and 45.8 million globally. Through forming a huge convoy of scooters, sidecars and anything else, we will send the message that slavery has no place in our communities. We’ve teamed up with Unseen UK who run the UK Modern Slavery Helpline and who will be there on the day to support the rally and answer any questions you may have about slavery in the UK and abroad.

You’ll help us kick start the As Seen From The Sidecar expedition which will see us circumnavigate the globe telling stories of every day life and connecting the world on a personal level. Many of the people living in modern day slavery are there because of little decisions we make at home, like buying the wrong product or service. And seeing as there are loads of really great organisations, like Unseen, that already tell us which things not to buy or do, we thought there’s a need for somebody to make these kind of issues a bit more personal. With this personal connection we will all understand that our decisions really do affect real people in ways that none of us would want and hopefully this will inspire us to be a bit more compassionate with our decision making. To tell these stories, we’re circumnavigating the globe on a scooter and sidecar. It’s an Official Guinness World Record attempt and it will be the first time anyone has ever done it. Money raised through the expedition and this event will go towards making these issues personal and to a group of partner organsiations who are fighting modern day slavery and other human rights abuses worldwide.

Help us fundraise
As well as an awareness raiser this event will double as a fundraiser so please do join in on the fundraising. All you’ve got to do is bang up a quick fundraising page and you will raise money for our fight for a more personally connected world and the brilliant organisations we’re working with. Try and get creative to raise more money by dressing your vehicle up or wearing something stupid yourself (please keep it clean though!). On sign up we’ll send you a pre-race pack that will give you loads of good tips on how to do this.


Join us and scoot in solidarity against modern day slavery! It will be a huge amount of fun and a truly unique way to kick off a completely bonkers project.
